The 500 Project, Art of Water, Affordable Housing

Hosted by Greta Anderson

Ames art teacher Susan Norris describes her “500 project,” a year­long effort to help the roughly 500 students at Meeker Elementary visualize their collective impact on the world—and on the school’s art supply closet.

Melissa Miller, program coordinator of Iowa Water Center, invites the public to The Art of Water, happening this Wednesday at Stephens’ Auditorium at 6:30 PM as part of the 10th Annual Iowa Water Conference. Also representing that event, Ames High senior Alexia Clinton (left) describes her experience in The Bluestem Institute. Jodi Enos-­Berlage and Jane Hawley describe the process of developing the multimedia dance presentation, Body of Water.

Terry Potter of AMOS discusses this Wednesday’s conference on affordable housing strategies, A Place to Call Home, intended to galvanize the community in an effort to form a Local Housing Trust Fund. The conference is co­sponsored by the City of Ames, Story County, and ISU.
